    If you want tires for this summer you may want to look elsewhere... they usually "lose" their truck :lol:

    1. They place orders if there's something specific that you want and they don't have in-stock.
    2. They tell you item will be here in X amount of days.
    3. By X amount of days item is not here
    4. you call and ask what's up.
    5. Item will now be here in XX amount of days.
    6. Item still not here by XX amount of days
    7. You call, their excuse is they don't know what country their delivery truck is in.
    8. Item is going to now be XXX amount of days before arrival
    9. XXX amount of days roll by, item not here yet.
    10. You wasted XXX amount of days, get fed up, cancel order that was placed and go buy from a reputable company instead.

    Hope that helps. :D

    Mind you this could happen ANYWHERES ! But I have heard a story or two like this... :wtf: But I can only speak for myself, and I have always gotta SWEET DEALS there..In fact I just bought a set of 17" Rota's and tires last Saturday there, with no problems but they had everything in stock. I was buying 17" wheels from them like every month due to pot holes :x

    Steve is right if you order anything be prepared to wait FOREVER. They forget everything they promise as well so if the guy say's "I'll write that down and give you a call" he's got more shit crammed in his mouth then my cats litter box. They have the most annoying bullshit stories on every shipment. Heres the deal they claim to order them on a certain date but they dont ship it until they have a good size order worth getting shipped so if your the first on the list be prepared to get lots of stories. The best one I heard so far was, the factory ran out of that size tire and had to make them. Well then why the fuck did you say they are reading them in their inventory. Anyway you'll get a good price if you dont care about the wait and the bullshit.

    Sometimes it's just for a kick, sometimes it's just petty bs.. but this time, I don't even see how you could make that mistake!

    Its elaborate he probably couldn't understand why you thought it was pronounced (ill-aborate) and not (el-aborate). It's a pretty common misconception actually.

    If your buying a tire that they have in stock you'll be fine.

    Why don't you just go to school and pay attention? I thought Canada's school system was better than what we have in the US, but thus far, that theory is out the window! :D

    English didnt interest me so i barely payed attention, and i thought they only focused on spelling from grades 3-8

    now chemistry and physics on the other hand does interest me, but i have to hone my skills before next semester or ill be fucked applying to schools/scolarships(sp :lol:)

    *EDIT for clarity*


    anyways, i ended up buying 2 prelli P3000's i hope these are worth the extra over the falkons
